Pioneer in the area of energy efficiency
egeplast places the greatest value on protecting the environment and energy resources. At the beginning of May the moment had arrived. In addition to renewed certification in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001:2009 for environmental management systems, for the first time the egeplast energy management system was also certified to DIN EN ISO 50001:2011. This makes egeplast a pioneer in the area of energy efficiency for the entire plastic pipe industry. Within two years, egeplast has been able to reduce both the energy and water needed to produce a metre of pipe by a two-digit % amount.
Reinhold Freermann (Technical Operations Manager) and Peter Brägelmann (Head of QUEM): “The new cooling plant with TurboCor technology is highly efficient in terms of energy. We use the waste heat to heat the new training and innovation centre.” Jörg Wittstock (Production Manager): “Our granulated material is brought to the correct temperature in advance in our own silos using waste heat from the pipe cooling zones.”
